First Samurai Waistguard is a Medium Leg Guards in Nioh 2. Head Armor protects the Legs of the player and can have varying degrees of quality and level, just like Weapons. In addition, they can provide Toughness bonus, physical, and elemental protection to your character. Medium Armor provides a balance between protection and agility. Toughness makes you deplete less Ki when Blocking, so if you wish to Block more often, consider wearing Armor that provides more. Usually the heavier Armor the better.
First Samurai Waistguard Description
The six tassets of this waistguard protect from the rear around to the thighs. The cloth and cords dangling from the back are the mark of an officer of high rank.
Part of a set of armour made to replicate that of the legendary general of the early Heian period, Sakanoue no Tamuramaro. A loyal retainer who was made supreme military commander, one of his many notable feats was subduing the great yokai Otakemaru. Seeny by many to be the idealised image of a samurai, it would not be an exaggeration to consider him the spiritual progenitor of the warriors who came after him.
